A note Regarding Bodywork options:
A common question I am asked is what kind of massage is best, Trigger point or Deep Tissue? It has been my experience that while Deep Tissue truly means different things to different people it CAN include trigger point therapy. My work tends to concentrate more on your issues and goals versus a cookie cutter approach. I almost always end up using a combination of all modalities to give you the massage that you want, and that your body needs. Unless you request a relaxing traditional Swedish massage, or a Sports massage more likely as not, you'll receive a little bit of everything: Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Sports and Swedish Massage. What ever gets the job done. Below are brief descriptions of each common modality.
Deep Tissue: Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface.
Trigger Point Therapy: A form of deep tissue work, Trigger Point Therapy focuses on the release of tension around specific nerve centers found throughout your body. It is great for relieving cramped and overused muscles.
Swedish Massage: Massage oil or cream is used with smooth, gliding strokes. Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. It is a classic massage that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation.
Sports: Sports massage uses a variety of massage techniques designed to help your body feel freer and stronger. It is particularly great for those with active lifestyles.
